Lowering the KLR for my 5'1"wife

I'll be lowering my 08 KLR 685 to fit my 5'1" wife. It already has the corbin extra low seat and I have 2" Kuba lowering links on the way. I plan on pushing the forks up 3/4"-1" also.
If she's still not comfortable on it, we will resole her DS boots w/1" spacers and a good lug sole. Then I guess it's a custom shock rebuild? We are trying to avoid getting a new BMW factory lowered G-650gs but will if need to.

Has anyone done this much suspension modification to their KLR and if so, what is the seat hight with the corbin seat and 2" links installed? Our goal is 30"

This is her on her 1.5" lowered Super Sherpa. She likes the bike but doing 2500 miles on a 9 day DS trip around Utah this summer just won't cut it.
